Tesla sold almost 500 thousand electric cars in 2020

American car company Tesla has updated its own record for car sales per year. It delivered 499,550 electric vehicles to customers in 2020, Hromadske reports.

“So proud of the Tesla team for achieving this ultimate goal! At the beginning of Tesla's existence, I thought we had an (optimistically) 10% chance of surviving at all, "wrote founder Musk.

Thus, the company has almost managed to achieve the goal of half a million cars sold. According to this indicator, Tesla has grown by 36% compared to 2019. Simultaneously, in general, over the past year, Tesla produced more than 509 thousand cars. This is 40% more than in 2019.

According to the New York Times, some automakers have seen sales increases during the pandemic, but none have seen as much growth as Tesla.

According to the American edition of Business Insider, Tesla shares rose 740% over the year. However, there is still no consensus among analysts about whether the growth in the value of the company's securities will continue.

Earlier it was reported that Las Vegas would create the first urban tunnel transport network for the rapid movement of Tesla electric vehicles.
